Supreme’s announcement of the spring/summer line should be an indication of the season’s change. Too bad it’s not. Have you seen the snow outside today? The likelihood of wearing Supreme’s new short-sleeve baseball jerseys, or a pair of carpenter shorts is pretty damn slim when the city is covered in more white than Fox News. A trip to Supreme on March 4th will be premature for a transition from down jackets to windbreakers.
Blink and you missed the fall gear from last year. Supreme was actually still selling clothes, and cool practical goods (metal pencil boxes, pocket knives, incense holders), but Rosa Acosta spread eagle was the real highlight. Buxom models like Rosa Acosta, Tera Patrick, and Krista Ayne never disappoint even when some of the designs seem a little phoned in. Supreme looks to some of the most in-demand photographers Terry Richardson, Kenneth Capello, Jamil GS, and visionary Larry Clark to shoot catalogs, and more imporatntly calendars that put Sports Illustrated‘s PG book to shame. The internet is still brimming with photos from Acosta’s photoshoot with Terry Richardson last October—hence this post. Name another model with a wingspan like that. [Silence] Imagine if the big four (photographers) joined forces for another historic Supreme calendar. The city would melt.
